Hi I have bought the kings dash cam and a 128g sd card and unsure what to format it to
I'm an oldie and it goes two ways for us older folk. Either they don't have a screen so we don't have to worry about looking at anything or the screen is larger, so we can see something.Are there dash cams with a large screen , I mean large enough to see, not a pis*y 2 1/2 or 3 inch screen? .... a Uniden ( can't see too small screen) .
Yea, one for the oldies.
I would not waste my money on a unknown brand like that especially at that cost. It will have a #hit sensor and lens. The cams firmware may not be available to reinstall if you receive errors/freezing in the future.I was toying with the idea of a motor bike dash cam. They come with front and back cameras, the only thing is mounting outside the car. and being sort of hidden so they don't get stolen of vandalised.
Hi Colly.I also have the A119 Viofo. Its a great cam including brilliant night vision with its Sony sensor, has lots of support on Dashcam Talk forum . Have you updated to the latest firmware. Since its release a new 4K model is now available but chews up sd memory when set to 4k and as you said , a bit more expensive.I did a lot of research on buying a dash cam 2 years ago, and ended up purchasing one of these new on ebay (Oz seller) for a bargain price of $90 (free freight)

It has been great! Although I only use it for capturing interesting journey footage, rather than running full-time.
Yep, the issue of the small screen for some of us older guys with deteriorating vision, is a consideration. But (with getting value for $ in mind) I opted for a pretty decent dash cam at the expense of a larger screen, figuring I shouldn't be looking at it whilst driving; and acknowledging I'd have to get the specs out to view/adjust settings.
By the way, from recollection, I believe this dash cam will also format your SD card to FAT32 as part of its normal function.
No doubt specifications have improved and prices increased since(?), but I'm giving VIOFO a thumbs up based on my experience.
I've just bought a mini 0906 (thanks for the link mauriceb) but the older and more expensive DOD shows our speed and which way is North.the issue of the small screen for some of us older guys with deteriorating vision, is a consideration.
